HDI Advance
3D Scanner

Flexible 3D Scanning System

We are now able to obtain high definition scans with our HDI Advance R1x 3D scanner.
This changes everything!

Built for Versatility

The HDI Advance 3D scanner provides the flexibility of scanning objects of different shapes and sizes simply by changing its field of view (FOV). Each system comes with three preset camera slots that allows you to quickly modify the field of view from 165 mm up to 600 mm, depending on the scanner model. The Metron Macro 3D scanner is also available for scanning extremely small objects.

Available Models

The HDI Advance 3D scanners are known for their flexibility, performance, and value. The systems are ideal for companies who need a 3D measurement system that can capture digital models fast with accuracy, especially when dealing with large volumes of objects that need to be scanned.

The HDI Advance R5x is the newest model. The system is great for metrology applications such as quality control inspection, or demanding projects that require high accuracy and detailed resolution scan data.

Color Scanning

Color scans are especially valuable in 3D visualization applications where color and texture is critical. The HDI Advance automatically adds texture mapping to any object that is being scanned by the system when the color option is selected.

Industries that greatly benefit from 3D color scans include:

  • Archaeology and Paleontology for preservation and archiving
  • Ecommerce for product visualization
  • Gaming and Visual Effects for 3D modeling for characters/objects

Customized Solution

The HDI Advance is a component-based solution that gives you the option to tailor the system specifically to your needs by upgrading individual hardware components (cameras/lenses).

The scanner also offers the flexibility to adapt to your scanning needs in the long term. To enhance scanning performance, upgrade only certain components you need without purchasing a completely new system.
